LONDON, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

One of the biggest trends to emerge in the healthcare sector in the last year
has been increasing competition from generic drugs. In 2012, patent on several
blockbuster drugs expired, leading to increasing generic competition for drug
manufacturers such as AstraZeneca Plc (NYSE: AZN), GlaxoSmithKline Plc (NYSE:
GSK), and PDL BioPharma Inc. (NASDAQ: PDLI). The trend is expected to continue
in 2013. The key for drug manufacturers will be to boost their product
pipeline. Innovation will also be important for drug related products
manufacturers such as Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE: HLF). On Thursday, healthcare
stocks ended mostly higher, tracking gains in the broad market. StockCall
